SPS Election 2020 Speaker Series

Open to all members of the Columbia University community, the SPS Election 2020 Speaker Series convenes and connects the foremost minds around one of the most important issues in U.S. public life: political elections. Bringing renowned political experts and visiting historians straight to the SPS student, alumni and faculty community, the series sparks thought-provoking discourse, dispels misinformation and empowers everyone — including non-U.S. citizens — to get involved in the November 3rd election season in meaningful ways. 

Each event provides important historical contexts for some of the pressing questions surrounding the U.S. electoral environment. All lectures will be held virtually and will feature a Q&A with the guest speaker. U.S. and international students are welcome and encouraged to participate. RSVPs are required.
